College Tunnel Links & Info

This is a list of pretty much every College Tunnel-related page I could find. Again, these are only the college tunnels that have web pages. If you know your college has tunnels, dont email me saying so - start a web page about them, put up some info (like your experiences in them) THEN email me the URL. If you are afraid to put it on your account, then send me the info and I will host an anonymous page for you.

Ok, I've decided I will take submissions about tunnel info. If you can give me a reasonable description of your college's tunnels, I'll put it on my Submitted Info page. I'd still prefer it if you could host the web page, but some people can't.

Note: If you don't see anything on tunnels on one of these pages do a "find" for "tunnels". (only necessary on a few pages, which have less tunnel content.. ratings system coming)

If your school is NOT listed, don't ask me about it. Ask around at your school. Ask seniors. Explore yourself! Find some info, then compile it into a web page. Make a map, if you want.
Currently, there are 61 schools listed here.
University of Arkansas, Fayetteville A tunneling experience from UAF can be found on my Submitted Info page.
A great site on the BCCC tunnels.
UC Berkeley Univ. of CA at Berkeley has a good system of tunnels, which are being rennovated. There was also a pretty good Article on them in a recent Daily Cal.
UCLA Sorry, currently BROKEN LINK... Eric Chien's Page on the grand UCLA Tunnels. If you are ever around the LA area I highly reccomend giving UCLA a visit, they have some great tunneling up there. UCLA, of course, is home of the famous underground "bridge" - an amazing underground room a few stories tall and several hundred feet long/wide. (Plus their tunnel security is pretty much non-existant) A map of their tunnels can be found on Eric's site, as well as some amusing tunneling anecdotes. Here's another, not as nice, UCLA Page.
UCSD The Page I maintain on the UCSD Tunnels. A Photo Tour will be coming RSN(tm)
